I've tried that, but it doesn't work. I just can't figure out which boxes to tick in the option box

random stab in the dark suggests that your problem is that you have "adaptive" selected... do it by vertex.

I'm not sure what you want, but if you need the surface to be low poly again, you have to do like Radical Edward said.

Subd to poly

Options, hit vertex radio button, then in the levels and divisions type 0
